A Jordanian official says riots broke out in towns north of Amman to protest the results of parliamentary elections.

Police spokesman Maj. Mohammed al-Khatib says about 400 people in four towns and a fifth site near a Palestinian refugee camp protested on roads late Wednesday, burning tires, smashing vehicles, and pelting security forces with stones. There were no reports of injuries.

One of the demonstrations took place on a highway linking Amman to Syria. Al-Khatib says police fired tear gas at the protesters on the highway and in one of the towns to restore order early Thursday.
